The 100 Day Hustle - Final Review

I hope you're having a wonderful holiday season!  Ours has been very busy but very enjoyable!  Now it's time to play sewing catch-up.

It's time for us to recap how we've done on our Hustle Lists!

Here are my final results (you can find my original list here):

1. Leaf Quilt - Done!

2. Finish the T-Shirt Quilt - Done!

3. Quilt for The Hubs - Started working on it and have a few blocks done!

4) On a Whim Quilt - Blocks are all done now I just need to put the together

5) Sew.Happy.Quilt QAL Quilt - It's quilted!!!  Binding is on the schedule or this weekend.

6) Baby Quilts - Done!  Full post to come but here's a few pictures.

7) Swoon - I didn't get anything done on mine but I did start a second one! That one is a gift and I have it all cut and 1/3 of the way pieced.

8) Double Wedding Ring - I finished all of my arcs!

9) Christmas Quilt - I bought/received lots of Christmas fabric but didn't make any quilts!  Next Year!

10) Small Gifts - We did a small swap in my do.Good Stitches circle and I made these for Marta!

Needlebook & Pincushion for my partner!

Four finished quilts and some other small projects - not too shabby!!  How did you do?  Be sure to write up your post and link it up here by 10:00ET Monday the 31st!  Don't forget about the prizes from our awesome sponsors!!  You can see the list here - and I'll post winners on the 1st or 2nd of January.

WIP Wednesday 12-5-12

How is it Wednesday again?!?!  This time of year goes by so fast - slow down please!  Although I've been checking more things off of my to-do list which is a great feeling!

The big finish for the week is two baby quilts that are getting mailed out to two lovely families.  I'll post the pictures once I know they've reached their new homes but I'm smitten with both of them!

We also went out for my favorite tradition of the holiday season - cutting down our Christmas tree!  I have only three requirements when it comes to the tree.  1) It must be real 2) It must be a Blue Spruce 3) It must be gigantically round - Think Christmas ball.  This year's tree meets all the requirements :)

Christmas Tree!

I also put together a little holiday swap amongst my do.Good stitches circle.  For my partner I made a pincushion and a little needlebook!

Needlebook & Pincushion for my partner!

For the pincushion I made a small Ohio Star block from some Chicopee.

Pincushion for Heal @ do.Good Stitches Swap

For the needlebook I used this tutorial from nanaCompany.  The tutorial is very well written and it comes together in a snap!  I highly recommend making one for yourself - I know I'm going to!

I have one more big project, a Swoon Quilt, to finish before Christmas.  My overly ambitious (read totally crazy and not going to happen) goal is to finish the top this weekend - I have one block done and nothing else cut yet.  What are you working on this week?
